Happy World Bee Day – May 20th

I don’t know who comes up with these things.  It is also National Be a Millionaire Day.  National Juice Slush Day, National Pick Strawberries Day, National Quiche Lorraine Day. National Rescue Dog Day.

So I am going to combine all those.  I am going to make a quiche with strawberries while drinking a Slush, watch the bees with Marley, and dream of being rich.  Not really.  That’s too much for me.  Today is my Dad’s birthday.  He would have been 75.  I think I’ll just make one of his signature dishes tonight and remember the good times in Wyoming.

Marshmallow and chocolate production moving along.  Orders going out.  Still waiting on kickstarter to pay the bill.  Amazon hasn’t even deposited what was paid 10 days ago.  Banks drive me crazy.  

So last night I made a marshmallow with this amazing cacao powder.  Working on a couple a variations to make a honey marshmallow S’more.  Stay tuned.  

Once kickstarter pays, I am setting up SKUs.  Honey’s that you will see pop up on the web site will be Buckwheat, Raspberry, Blueberry, Knottweed, Cranberry, Orange Blossom, Blackberry, Gallberry, Clover,  and some blends. (I don’t know why I capitalized them)  More coming soon as harvests are done.  

I am making my honey subscription the best in the country.  Unfortunately no Tupelo this year.  It rained a lot and harvest was 4 barrels light at my friends apiary.  I am calling around to other folks I know, but everyone in SE Georgia has had rough spring.  Welcome to beekeeping.  I’ll write more about tupelo another day.

Have a great Wednesday!  Stay safe!  You are loved!
